Why Tanasha Donna should give polygamy a shot

Tanasha Donna is a strong woman “who don’t need no man”… Except that she does and we know this from her “thirst traps” that include her doing what she probably considers to be belly dancing.

And then there is the fact that she only ever truly makes headlines in East Africa when it is about her being linked to men -albeit superstar men such as Omah Lay.

Or perhaps it was because we were discussing the lack of new content and music from her. No, really, when was the last time Tanasha Donna released a song and did you care for it? Did you hear it radio or at the club? Because I understand that argument that hearing songs on the radio is no longer the mark of whether or not it is a hit (radio is dead) but the club? They HAVE to play the music everyone wants to dance to.

Now she’s back in the headlines over some comments she made regarding her ex, the father of her son, Diamond Platnumz. And it is all about the fact that she has once again reiterated her lack of enthusiasm for being a second wife.

Tanasha Donna is a very attractive lady and I am sure that a lot of men would be willing to take her and her son on and make an honest woman of her BUT the problem here is it’s not the type of men she wants.

What Tanasha Donna should learn from her Memphis performance

Let that sink in. The average fool on Twitter would probably chop his foot off for the opportunity to date her. Hell, he’d probably sell his mother into slavery for that chance but for some context, you need to be aware that the average Kenyan (or East African) man hasn’t seen any action since June last year.

And she doesn’t have her eyes trained to find “average”. Remember that Tanasha was linked to a bunch of ballers (one of whom is said to have given her the BMW she drives (hail Edgar Obare) and Wizkid at some point was seen entertaining her after his concert was done and then there is Diamond Platnumz… Average men do not factor into her math.

Tanasha Donna is entitled for trying to force us to support her music

And that is why she needs to start accepting to be a second wife. Her religion, Islam allows for this and there is no top tier, high-value man who is going to take her seriously given the fact that she comes with baggage attached to her in the form of Diamond Platnumz’ son.

Do you see Wizkid settling down with a single mother? What about Otile Brown? Actually, Otile is a simp so maybe he isn’t the best example.

But I am sure Tanasha Donna is still not at the point in her life where being a second wife is an option.. But she will arrive there soon enough. Youth -and by extension is beauty- is fleeting and that is the only thing she brings to the union -well, that and Diamond Platnumz son and whatever complications their relationship and co-parenting agreement brings with it..

Kenya Is East Africa’s Music Powerhouse BUT…

You read the title right, Kenya is actually East Africa’s defacto musical powerhouse. There are no ifs, buts or maybes because it is the country that actually decides which stars will be stars and who will become a superstar.

Vera Sidika Explains Why She Chooses To Give Birth In Kenya Rather Than The States

The numbers are in and anyone with enough brain cells to rub together to start a fire can look at these very simple numbers and see that this is a fact. If we are not feeling your music, you will not become a star but this is actually also a very bad thing.

And the reason I am of this opinion is that the data shows that we as a country actually betray Kenyan stars. We betray our own. I have gotten ahead of myself so let me get back to the very beginning.

Socialite Huddah Monroe Discloses Interest In Vying For Kenya’s Presidential Seat

I was going through different statistics for the YouTube analytics of the biggest celebrities in East Africa. That means, Kenya, Tanzania Uganda but also for the greater East African regions such as Rwanda and South Sudan. What I found was very interesting because it showed me why Kenya needs to become very restrictive about who we support because as I noted earlier, we make the stars.

I was always of the opinion that Tanzanian artists are big because of the unwavering support they are given by their home audience but I found out that the secret weapon is truly just Kenya’s support. Think of anyone of East Africa’s biggest stars, Diamond Platnumz, Zuchu, Mbosso, Rayvanny, Harmonize and Ali Kiba. They get most of their love and support from Kenya!

Naivasha Rally proves entertainment is future of Kenyan economy

Can you imagine that? The main reason for this is because compared to our East African counterparts, Kenya has the best internet infrastructure. To add to this, despite Uhuru Kenyatta’s kangaroo regime and the insane amounts of taxes we have been subjected to, we still have the most affordable internet which means Kenyans can and often do enjoy online content.

The second reason is that we suffer from low self-esteem which manifests itself in our praise and craving for foreign content. It is actually very true that we do have a problem with supporting our own. Each of the most popping artists in the East African regions are given support by Kenya. At this rate, they should just do a “gratitude concert” and thank us.

Can you imagine how big Kenyan artists would be if we gave them the same level of support? It really only is Otile Brown who seems to get this level of support from us but even then, it isn’t enough for him to compete with the top 2 most popular artists in Kenya-he rounds off the top 3 but that only earns him bronze.

I mean, even Omah Lay gets most of his support from Kenya. He has a healthy support base from his own country and community with Nigerians really coming out to support his content and music but Kenya still takes the top slot, which is one of the reasons why he is as big as he is in Africa and not just in Nigeria.

And this opinion is borne out by the fact that when Kenya stops supporting an artist, their numbers suffer horribly and that is seen very well in Harmonize. He is the only artist I have seen on the list without a strong fanbase in Kenya and he is suffering for it, His graph has shown a very steady dive and his numbers have subsequently plummetted.

Imagine if we could get the same support for our own, Kenyan born talent? Or perhaps, what Kenyan artists need to actually do is to start claiming they aren’t Kenyans. Maybe Otile Brown would have been bigger had he come out and claimed he was Tanzanian. Or even Ugandan. We seem to only ever want to support our own when they win after the rest of the world has finally recognised our star.

Africa will remember: Bebe Cool played himself by having Omah Lay arrested

Ugandan artist Bebe Cool has been the subject of alot of pan-African conversation and none of it was in a positive light. But it is really hard for me to feel bad for him because he kind of put the target on his own back with some of his most recent shenanigans.


You see, Bebe Cool, like every other Ugandan artist, is subject to Uganda’s set of Covid19 lockdown rules. And as a result, he has been unable to hold or participate in any concerts or put on any shows. But he was oddly quiet when a Ugandan promoter announced that they were putting on a concert that would feature a Nigerian group of artists including Omah Ley and Tems. if we use our buruweins, we know that you have to market and push the event to ensure it was a success. Bebe Cool was silent the entire time the event was pushed -that is, until the eleventh hour.

When the Nigerian artists began to market the event as the date had arrived. They had already made travel arrangements and it was only then that Bebe Cool decided to object and very strongly at that. So what did he do? He took to social media and announced that he would not allow the concert to carry on given he and other Ugandan artists hadn’t been allowed to put up a concert. It would appear he actually went through with his threat. Because the concert went down and was a success. Omah Lay and terms along with their group put up the best possible show. Cue Bebe Cool’s nuclear option getting engaged.

Omah Lay and the rest were arrested and taken to jail. From there, they began the process of trying to get released and also to understand what they were being charged with. That was when Bebe Cool’s role in the entire fiasco came to the fore. And Africans the world over began to call him out. Nigerians were the most vociferous on the matter but that is understandable. My friend tells me they are ferocious about defending their own. But we now have to look at what lies ahead for Bebe Cool the fool.

Bebe Cool is going to have a tough time going forward with his music outside of Uganda. You see, his fellow artists are probably going to be lured to work with him if he pays them for a collaboration. He will, however, have a hard time pulling in fans and supporters for his music and art. I am sure he isn’t too perturbed about all this because he is one of Yoweri Museveni’s hired puppets so his prosperity is only tied to the health and power of Uganda’s dictator.

“I haven’t heard of Dela before Coke Studio” Bebe Cool blasts Kenyan musicians for being lazy

But can you imagine Bebe Cool being tasked to work with a continental company? Imagine him being signed on by Coke Studio to work with a Nigerian artist. Hilarious rally. Or can you imagine him having any further ambitions to become a musical icon in Africa and not just in Uganda? Laughable. This story even has an update. Bebe Cool tried going to the Nigerian High Commission in Uganda for some nonsense and he had was chased away like a dog.
